4:03 pm
i'm sure you've heard of aaa's legendary roadside assistance. you may have even used it for you or your family at home or away. i was coming home from my cabin, my big f350 was loaded up with lots of gear, my family, and all my animals. and, um, it broke down. um, and aaa got there quickly, helped me unload all the, um, animals and equipment, and, uh, got my truck down to the mechanic and turned it in for me at the night drop. the service with aaa, on--on phone service, when i call in, gracious, eager to help, what can i do to help you? are you safe? are you parked in a safe area? uh, make sure that, you know, you stay in the car if you're on the highway or the road. that was just really nice. no one else can match aaa's comprehensive road assistance program. one call is all it takes to reach someone who's ready to help, and aaa is available 24/7, day or night, to meet your needs with more than 42,000 vehicles across north america ready to serve you. you can always count on aaa.
4:04 pm
these days, some insurance companies and car makers provide roadside assistance plans, but do they provide the kind of service you need? when something goes wrong on the road, some insurance companies even require you to find a towing service on your own, then pay upfront for the help, and then file paperwork for reimbursement at a later date, just for a simple tow or lockout. you see, not all roadside assistance plans are the same. some car manufacturers' plans come with a lot of limitations, making it very difficult to know what you're getting for what you paid. some plans are even free to join, but then charge you every time you use the service. and many plans run out after a certain period of time. you may not realize you're no longer covered. on the other hand, aaa offers fast, reliable roadside assistance you can trust. and when you call aaa, a skilled technician will arrive and do their best to get you back on your way. another big difference is that many roadside assistance plans offered by car manufacturers or insurance companies' roadside assistance plans only cover your car, but aaa covers you,
4:05 pm

4:06 pm
that he's--he's got some backup other than his parents. i've actually had a flat tire a couple times. they came out and took care of it and it just--it's good to know aaa is always out there. today we're gonna show you some things you may or may not know about aaa, and all the different ways that people just like you rely on aaa every day. aaa just doesn't save you money on the road, they can save you money every day. aaa members receive member discounts at over 100,000 of your favorite retail stores, restaurants, hotels, attractions, and so much more. with aaa discounts, members can save money throughout the u.s. and canada and online. aaa even offers a handy mobile app that shows you exactly where to find nearby savings, whether you're close to home or traveling. who doesn't love to save? and those savings really add up. last year, aaa members across america saved more than $1 billion with aaa discounts, which is an average saving of $86 per member. isn't it time you got your share of the savings? take advantage of your aaa discounts just a few times and your membership can easily pay for itself.

after that, the money you save is like putting money in your pocket. and that's just one more way aaa is always with you. once you go on the aaa app, you put in your location, it'll, um, give you discounts around your area. anywhere i go, i ask if they accept aaa discount. and i do like a feature aaa has on their app, which shows the cheapest gas in your area. i use my aaa discount card, and the discounts that i get outweigh the price that i pay to be a member. so if you're not a aaa member already, here's your chance to enjoy all that aaa has to offer. and aaa makes it easier to manage your membership. you can go online to make payments, updates to your accounts, or to access special members only offers. ♪ now you get peace of mind with one of the most comprehensive and trusted roadside assistance programs in the country. with a aaa membership, our 24 hour help on the road is always just a phone call away. while many other plans only cover your car, aaa is the smart choice covering you,
